"ROCKER"

Verse 1
Well, some people think the Man who came 2,000 years ago
Was just another guru with a sermon & a show
To serenade the congregations in their comfy pews,
While billions in the world outside have got nothing but the blues.

Verse 2
But if only they could see & know what He was all about,
They'd know that there's a reason to wake up, to sing & shout.
He was arebel, an iconoclast who came to rock the nations,
To start up & to build up on His solid-rock foundation,

Chorus 1
He was a Rocker,
Yes, He was a Rocker.
He was a Rocker,
Jesus was a Rocker.

Verse 3
Yes, He's the life-blood pumping in my veins, the oil in my lamp,
Electrifying current; He's like the voltage in my amp.
His rhythm keeps on thumping, & His love can make you fly
And keep you moving on 'til we'll be jamming in the sky.

Verse 4
His rhythm keeps on thumping, & His love will never die,
But keep you going strong 'til we'll be jamming in the sky.
But until then, His song will never make you feel confined.
It should make you want to shake a leg, & get off your behind …

Chorus 2
For the Rocker,
'Cause Jesus is a Rocker.
Still a Rocker,
Jesus is a Rocker.

Chorus 3
Jesus is a Rocker,
Yes, He is a Rocker.
Still a Rocker,
You know He is a Rocker.

Verse 5
His rhythm keeps on thumping, & His love can make you fly
And keep you going strong 'til we'll be jamming in the sky.
But until then, His song will never make you feel confined.
It should make you want to shake a leg, & get off your behind …

For the…

Chorus 4
For the Rocker,
'Cause Jesus is a Rocker.
Still a Rocker,
Jesus is a Rocker.
Owwwww!

Chorus 5
Rocker!
Yeah!
Jesus was a Rocker
Yeah, He was a Rocker,
Rocker,Rocker, rocker, rocker, rocker!

-More than just a talker,
-Jesus is a Rocker.
-Like an all-star at B-ball or soccer!
-Rock on!
